Comm Arts – 50 Years of Creative Excellence

Please join AIGA Reno Tahoe as we welcome Patrick Coyne, Editor and Designer of Communication Arts, for an inspirational discussion on the history and philosophy of the magazine, how CA's competitions work and how creatives are chosen for profiles in the magazine. Patrick will also present a selection of award-winning design and advertising projects produced on limited budgets and discuss the future of creativity in the post-information age.

Patrick Coyne is editor and designer of Communication Arts. In addition to determining the layout and content of the magazine, Mr. Coyne writes feature stories and the editor’s column. He has also guest lectured at numerous creative clubs and universities.

The recipient of numerous awards for his design and art direction (including a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators), Coyne received the 2004 Design Leadership Award from AIGA. Prior to joining CA in 1986, Coyne studied at the California College of the Arts, worked for Michael Mabry Design and SBG Partners and established the multi-discipline, San Francisco-based design firm of Patrick Coyne Stephanie Steyer Design Office.

Founded in 1959, Communication Arts is the premier source of inspiration for graphic designers, art directors, design firms, corporate design departments, advertising agencies, interactive designers, illustrators and photographers—everyone involved in visual communication.

Light refreshments provided.
